Good Books

 “A book is the only place in which you can examine a fragile thought without breaking it, or explore an explosive idea without fear it will go off in your face.  It is one of the few havens remaining where a person's mind can get both provocation and privacy.Our hearts are restless until they rest in Thee, O Lord. --Edward P. Morgan

"Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend.  Inside of a dog it's too dark to read." --Groucho Marx
